My cat may well call 911 on me one of these days.

The cat was really pissed having been locked in the bathroom all day. I'd be pissed too.

To many good "Pussy" jokes left un said here.

It gets top billing when you call it college girls gone wild ,mix some meth in & it is also more than plausible.

Had my former spouse committed for 10days with similar circumstances :)
If it's a male cat she will have no problem getting a restraining order on it
He will need a lawyer ,a witness & a court date though. In the end it seems we are all scardey (scary) cats:) Rick

:) Only because I was running away :) Am certain that was a question on the Phych. papers also.
When I received a permanent restraining they inspected to see if I had been Bobbed.

Because they have a MUCH better sense of smell than most human beings, domestic pets like cats and dogs sometimes react to things in the environment which many people are not aware of. These aromas or odors can trigger strange behavior in some pets.

For example, there are cases in which cats, and occasionally dogs, will go beserk when a pet owner bathes or uses perfumes or deoderants using scented items which contain oils taken from the scent glads of some wild animals (many colognes, perfumes and scented soaps do contain those substances in minute quantities).

I heard several years ago a news report about a cat which reacted to a scent in a bubble bath mixture and kept the terrified owner trapped in her bath tub for several hours. The pet was hissing and even striking at the owner, and yet the cat was normally very quiet and well behaved.

Before rushing to condemn a pet cat or dog for weird outbursts like that, it is important to rule out environmental triggers. Many domestic pets still react like wild animals when they encounter pheromones from wild creatures contained as scent additives in mass produced retail products.
